Why we’re the choice for material lifting needs
Wheelco have been helping Kiwis with commercial and personal materials handling for over quarter of a century. We have a close relationship with our clients, continually learning about their operations and needs from equipment to run a more efficient, safe business. All of our handling equipment must go through careful testing and checks to ensure it’s up to the tasks that you demand. Our scissor lifts come with features like hand release level control, positive braking systems and foot operated hydraulics with a safety overload bypass valve. You’ll find options up to 500kg through our standard range. If you need help determining what’s right for you, simply chat to our team who provide both pre and post-purchase support.
Industries and applications where our scissor lifts are used
Scissor lifts may be designed primarily for elevating or unloading items from raised levels (such as off the back of a van, trailer or truck), but we know that New Zealand businesses use them for other purposes, too. You’ll find our scissor lifts in loading bays of warehouses and supermarkets and in transports and logistics depots. But we frequently supply to automotive, workshop businesses and construction companies as well. The scissor lift can be used as a secure platform for motorbike elevation, a support platform and even as a portable workbench.
Every part of our scissor lifts has been designed and manufactured for durability in the environments they’re used in daily. That includes the bolts and fittings, the steel frame and platform, the industrial grade springs, the hydraulics, braking and of course the wheels. When you work with a Wheelco-supplied scissor lift, you’ll notice how well built everything is.
A scissor lift should reduce the reliance upon manual lifts which can create hazards to your team. But it’s not just the lifting and lowering our scissor lifts will aid with - the shifting of the load itself is made easier with sturdy, smooth-action urethane wheels. While our equipment can support heavy weights, the units themselves are reasonably easy to move around on their own, and getting close up to an elevated platform to load or unload is very quick.
Wheels that last the distance
Scissor lifts are used in stock handling in warehouses, but they may also be used in places where chemicals and wet surfaces are present. That’s why our range comes with resistant urethane wheels that will stay in good shape for extended periods of use. And when it comes time to replace your wheels, Wheelco can quickly supply this without needing any extra information from you.
Range of options available to suit your needs
Our scissor lifts are versatile in their application and environments. We do offer solutions for different weight ratings including 150kg, 350kg and 500kg. All of these options come with the same hydraulic operation and robust build quality - so there’s no sacrifice on features if you only need a lighter weight rated solution.
